Marcus Hutchins

Jan 11, 2021

Marcus Hutchins deserves to be called a hero. If not for saving the world, then for turning away from the dark hacking community to the good side of fighting cybercrime and all those that want to destroy what humanity has achieved so far.

At 22, he single-handedly put a stop to the worst cyber attack the world had ever seen. Then he was arrested by the FBI. This is his untold story.⁠

“At around 7 am on a quiet Wednesday in August 2017, Marcus Hutchins walked out the front door of the Airbnb mansion in Las Vegas where he had been partying for the past week and a half. A gangly, 6 foot 4, 23-year-old hacker with an explosion of blond-brown curls, Hutchins had emerged to retrieve his order of a Big Mac and fries from an Uber Eats deliveryman. But as he stood barefoot on the mansion’s driveway wearing only a T-shirt and jeans, Hutchins noticed a black SUV parked on the street—one that looked very much like an FBI stakeout.”⁠

Family dysfunction rolls down from generation to generation, like a fire in the woods, taking down everything in its path until one person in one generation has the courage to turn and face the flames. That person brings peace to their ancestors and spares the children that follow. — 士 Terry Real
